    It will not hurt to compare prices on the net, also the 870 is like the rem 700 of the shotgun world, wingmaster is the higher end model.

    Def jump on that trade...you'll thank yourself in 5-10-20 yrs when that wingmaster is worth many times more than that used marlin 17hmr. Probably kill alot more with it too.

    No need to, I beleive ya. Didnt think they made the wingy in a 3.5 inch reciever. Even better for you!

    Since I just picked up another one myself.....it's not a super mag if its a wingmaster...it's just a magnum. Most wingmasters were 2 3/4" only. The mags are 3". Great guns IMHO.
